Kamehameha alum Li’i Pontes pitched the next three innings for the Rainbow Warriors, giving up just one hit while striking out one. Freshman Vince Reilly pitched two perfect innings with three strikeouts. For the season, Reilly has not allowed a walk or a hit in four innings pitched.

Offensively for UH, Adam Fogel broke out of a slump, registering his first three hits of the season. His three hits were also a game high. Evan Sankey took the loss for NDSU, allowing four hits and three runs in two innings pitched.
